Abstract

When the FCC created the rules for wireless Enhanced 911 (E-911) service, a flurry of research and development activities dedicated to locating the position of emergency callers followed. The current deadline for this capability is October 1, 2001. In this article, we review the unique challenges and some of the proposed approaches for each of the major wireless standards.
